Later this month, Guernsey’s in New York will be auctioning some iconic Americana, including a baseball signed by six U.S. presidents, Frank Sinatra’s cigarette lighter, the first issue of The Amazing Spiderman comic book, an original script for the Three Stooges’ Low Afternoon, and the original tablets Charlton Heston held in The Ten Commandments. The Fiberglas tablets are expected to go for $30,000 to $40,000, in spite of the fact that, according to a company that makes true stone reproductions of the tablets for $8,500 a shot, the Third Commandment is missing. You’ve been warned. So please, don’t take the Lord’s name in vain if you buy it and discover you’ve been shorted 10 percent of the commandments.
